An ambitious film no doubt, the upcoming Savitri biopic Nadigaiyar Thilagam also being made in Telugu as Mahanati is en route to completion soon. Being directed by Nag Ashwin under the Vyjayanthi Movies banner with music by Mickey J Meyer the film stars Keerthy Suresh portraying legendary actor Savitri. 

Mahanati also has Malayalam actor Dulquer Salmaan portraying the iconic Gemini Ganesan, who lovingly was called by fans as 'Kadhal Mannan'.

One of the most popular and leading actors in south Indian cinema, Samantha Akkineni is said to be playing a vital role to the proceedings of the film.

Vijay Deverakonda, whose popularity shot up after last year’s Arjun Reddy also has a starring role in Nadigaiyar Thilagam.

Arjun Reddy also fetched actor Shalini Pandey immense popularity and she too will be seen in Mahanati.

Meanwhile, reports now state Keerthy Suresh and Samantha will be featured in only scene in the film. It’ll be most interesting to witness them together on screen as we do not know the context or the circumstances under which the two meet in the film.

As of now, Mahanati/Nadigaiyar Thilagam is scheduled for a March 29 release date.
